that the deficit is the top issue for so many in this country, how are they supposed to feel about the fact this candidate says hees not going to balance the budget until the end of the second term. >> our tax reform plan has been validated by harvey rosen out of princeton. even the president's current head of the council economic adviser said in 1986 -- a lot of additional jobs, so if you you add up the growth, we think $7 million worth of jobs, plus what we can save by reforming the tax code, it's fully possible. now, you mentioned defense spending. we're going to ramp it up, but do it at the same time the spending on overseas operations is going down. he wants to capture what he spent on afghanistan to help the military rest and reconstitute after ten years of welfare. >> it seems unfair when you all do it, too, those wars are already slated to end and they were paid for with borrowed money. when that isn't being spent, it's not saved for you too to do something else with. >> spending on defense, okay, the top line, if you're including those top line overseas expend we're going to be spe

clear, mr. macgovern, your concern with the national debt and the budget deficit you would allow the cuts to go through? glak i didn't say that. i'm trying to get collar clarity i'm making a larger point. you're fighting over a side show of the war. .. and that's my point. >> if i can i don't want to put words in john small, but john i think you said if i remember correctly, that the budget was, quote on quote, too timid. did you say that? i did. let's be clear what the right and budget does is make devastating cuts and virtually every program in the medicare as we know it right now major cuts in pell grants, major cuts in nutrition programs and i have no doubt. john as i understand it wanted to go even further to see the deficit reduction to do it not on the backs of the elderly, the sec and the poor and that is by asking the wealthiest people and the largest corporations to start paying their fair share of taxes. i was talking about it gets us to solve that problem over a period of ten years. i thought ten years was too long basically. that was not an endorsement of every singl
. when you were speaker of the house for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into powers -- came into power couple of years later, indiana was 700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know from my colleague how will we protect and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> you know our budget has to be in indiana according to the constitution. i have ballast and produce a bipartisan budget. -- i have balanced and produced a bipartisan budget. i find it almost laughable the united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times congressman. you voted and the resolve to increase the deficit by $200 billion. >> fine key house, senate, and governor's races from across the country at c-span radio and c- span.org. "washington journal" continues. host: conversation about the battleground state of new hampshire continues with jim merrill. if i could just begin with some specifics about new hampshire. the unemployment rate,
and that there are -- i mean, in past budget deficits, big budget deals, there have been efforts made, successful efforts to either expand or protect low income programs. so it is possible to do without putting at risk the most vulnerable, the major deficit reduction packages of 1990, 1993 and 1997 all protect programs for low income americans as did the bowles-simpson proposal that was under consideration last summer that pushed out, that created the sequester. the resolution of which created the sequester and the current cliff that we're looking at. so i guess i would say i don't disagree that these programs are at risk, but it's important to know that lots of people are working to protect them, and that it is, certainly, these are not programs that are contributing to the long-term fiscal problems in the country, and so there's no reason why they can't be protected as part of the resolution. >> just to clarify, um, while the big programs like snap are not subject to sequester, you know, lie heap, wic which is the special nutrition program for women, infants and children, head start, there are a number
and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill
it into deficit by imposing the bush tax cuts that were temporary, including millionaires. what governor romney is proposing -- let's return to those policies, the eight years of george bush. and continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy. loudoun responded in 2008. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barack obama came into office. we will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery , and president obama has been leading that. this is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory heal
of the circumstances on the ground. the message from the imf from example is that if you go too fast with deficit reduction, you may make the economy even worse adn so worse than the situation you are trying to cure. the argument is by enforcing strict rules, you make the patients iller. that message will come across loud and clear. the five people met 24 hours ago and made the same case. he agreed with them. when they meet chancellor angela merkel, it will not be an open door. i am sure it will be very polite and a lot of listening. there is no sign of much movement from the german government. >> i do not suppose it helped angela merkel when we look at the employment figures coming out today. not comfortable. >> no, because the argument becomes very, very real if your own economy is slowing down. the figures from germany showed the rate of unemployment remaining the same but the actual number going up a little bit. the movement is in the wrong direction. maybe the economy needs a bit of stimulus. >> thanks very much. a former serbian army chief is appealing his conviction of crimes against human
focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on to a very narrow lead. adam brooks, bbc news, washington. >> bold predictions in a tight race. as adam just reported, no state is more hotly contested than ohio. laura is in cleveland for us tonight at a cleveland market for us tonight, laura. i imagine you've been chatting to shoppers today. what have th
? would you want a full you are more years with trillion dollar deficits every year? >> both campaigns are playing the confidence game. both sounded upbeat about their candidate's chances and who can blame them when the polls are so close. behind the scenes, they must be very nervous. bbc news, washington. " there's good news for burma. the world bank has proposed development grants of $80 million and will provide another $160 million of credit once the country has cleared its existing debt. it's helping with the asian development bank and international monetary fund. this is after a year of political reform. we are joined by our bbc editor for the burmese service. >> the money is going to be used primarily to provide financial governance to the government and, also, to create conditions for growth and jobs. that's where the money is going to be spent. this is a tremendous boost to the burmese government, because in the last 20 decades there were western sanctions and it had not received any assistance financially from institutions such as the world bank and the asian development bank.
. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an sbe preneurothinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factry, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. . i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help small business grow and thrive. by the way, i didn't study small business alone. i've lived small business. i know how business works and i want to use that experience and that skill to help small businesses across the country. and there are a lot of ways to do that. let me mention just a couple. one relates to our taxes. do you realize that the taxes paid by a small business in america can be as high as 35%, that's the income tax and then if you add other taxes t payroll tax, the state income tax if you have one, real estate tax, sales tax, well you can find
, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back that as it is now. -- then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
if he wants to get deficit reduction out of raising taxes. president romney will go in the opposite direction. now, how do i feel about that? when i was mayor of new york city, i had a city that had a deficit of about $3 billion. we had 10.5% unemployment. we had 1.1 million people on welfare. we were coming to a -- what was described, one of the reasons i got elected. i got elected because the economy was horrible, had 2,000 murders in the two years before i ran for mayor so i got elected at the first republican in 25 years, first one to remain a republican in 50. [laughter] i got legislated with a very, very simple and direct campaign slogan. you can't do any worse. [laughter] tell me how i could make things worse? 3,000 murders? could unemployment go do 15%. maybe instead of 500,000 people moving out, 600,000 move out. give me a shot and let's see what can happen. my predecessor had done what a lot of people who should never be executives do. he appointed a commission to tell them how to straighten out of economy, but the commission was going to report after the election. the com
speaker speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels caiman is a couple of years later on budgets that you helped to write, indiana was a 700 million-dollar state in debt, and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would just like to know for my colleagues how we are going to make sure we can preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> congressman, if you would've spent the last 12 years in indiana rather than in congress come up you would know that our balanced budget has to be done according to the constitution. i have balanced and produced bipartisan budgets. oddly, you talk about fort wayne's own day long in our lieutenant governor. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you heard it not once, not twice, but five times, congressman. you voted and the results increased the deficit by $200 billion. >> find key house and senate in government races from across the country. find it at c-span.org/2012. >> we have a debate in rhode island's f
a question. look, the biggest issue that faces the country is the debt and deficit. we're going to have to make tough discussions. those decisions can't be played politics with is your first question talked about jay. we have to have a big robust plan, i would around $4 to $5 closer to $5 trillion that takes in to account everything. it there are a lot of templates. i could list them. the fact there's a lot of work being done with this. i hope during the lame duck we gate a great start. it's a huge issue for jobs and the future of the current. these are canary in the mine shaft. we need move forward with a good policy that will impact not only montana but the whole country. do it in a responsible way to move our economy guard. that is really the number one issue we need to be working on once this election is over. it should be -- it's being worked on as we speak too. >> moderator: congressman ray bergs. rehberg: thank you. the first piece of legislation i passed was a balance budget requirement for the federal government. the first piece of legislation is whatever it takes to repeal oba

the statehouse, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power just a couple years later, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. you know, john, facts are stubborn things, and i'd just like to know from my colleagues on stage how are with we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressman if you'd spend the last 12 years in indiana rather than congress, you'd know our budget has to be balanced according to our constitution. i've balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budgets and, oddly, these you talk about, they were supported by fort wayne's own david long and our lieutenant governor, becky skillman. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times, congressman, you voted -- and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion, billion with a b, dollars. >> find key house, senate and governors races from across the country on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org/campaign2012. >> our coverage inclu
rate. unlike most companies when you put on more and more deficit the rate goes up, they were able to borrow almost unlimited amounts at the government rate and create a portfolio which some people have described as a hedge fund because they were able to arbitraged the difference between government rates and the rate that they used to buy private label securities. i don't think the g s cs -- i do think it is a stretch to call them the cause of the financial crisis. so let's talk about what the gee scs have done subsequent to the crisis since they put into conservatorship. that is the point in time i am more familiar with and one of the things they have done and the reason i took the job is they have been the only game in town for the mortgage market. and here are the numbers accounting for 75% of total mortgage market if you add in fha, and other government mortgage providers, you get 95%. the private market has been providing a only 5% of the mortgage money where would we have been over the last three or four years without the gst performing this function? in addition, we worked w
secretary writing on a camel in the movie deficit in february. and he was still mad about the trip when i talked to him. anyway, i'm glad to be here. sandy did not keep me awake at and to with colleagues with whom i've shared many professional and personal experiences. [inaudible] a quick note on the role of assistant secretary of state, i don't know how my colleagues feel, but of all the jobs i've had i thought that was the most demanding in the most challenging. the most dramatic was being with henry kissinger on a lot of escapades. the most fun with him ambassador to but the most grueling i believe was assistant secretary. i have both a macro and micro example of challenges, but with time i will say that china road goes was a macro challenge. we can come back to that because that was quite a challenge during my time in office. the macro one is really shared by all of us. that is to get the attention of this region that it deserves. now, every regional assistant secretary tries to do that from a parochial standpoint. in our case at least in the last two decades, the fact it's so importa
